How long can beer be stored?
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
Do you have a legal question for me please?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I just want to know how long I can store beer without it going bad. Not legal question.
I will transfer your question to our General Category.
The shelf life of beer depends on various factors, such as how it was prepared and how you store it.
While some believe that beer can last for a long time, my research on this topic shows that storing in the pantry has a shorter life span than if you keep it in the refrigerator.
Beer cans in the pantry can stay 6 to 9 months while in the refrigerator 6 months to 2 years. The same is also for bottled and homemade beer.
Best to keep cold as change in temperature will cause beer to go bad. If you choose not to keep some beer cold, try to store in a cool, dark place, such as a closet away from direct sunlight.
